Kirio Hikifune is a former captain of the 12th Division and a member of the Royal Guard, holding the title "Ruler of Grain".
AppearanceEditUpon her return to Soul Society, Kirio is a plump, purple haired lady with styled swirl-shaped markings on her cheeks and black lips. She has a large silver adornment in her hair and wears the standard Shinigami uniform beneath a white, long-sleeved haori decorated with the Royal Guard's emblem. Captain Shinji Hirako noted that her appearance has changed drastically since he last saw her, so much so that he didn't even recognize her.
Kirio's true form is a slender and well-endowed version of her plump self with her long hair left down. She is only plump initially as her cooking technique uses up her entire Reiatsu, forcing her to gain as much weight as possible beforehand in order to ensure that her body is able to endure the process.
Kirio comes across as a cheery individual, but has been known to lash out at others, such as striking Shinji Hirako for not recognizing her.
